the last blizzard in this city was 2011, 20 inches of snow. we'll see if this will set a record overnight. to give you an idea how big this storm is, how many states are affected tonight, this is a picture from nasa that we're looking at. you can see the storm right now stretches all the way north up in maine all the way down to the mid-atlantic and new jersey. there are near whiteout conditions across the northeast and i am in new york city where the mayor is warning the storm is unpredictable, he's been instruct is everyone to stay inside though there are a lot of the people out tonight. pictures of destruction from superstorm sandy are fresh in his mind and the mind of many people in the new york city area. new york city police commissioner ray kelly is here with me. we'll be talking in just a moment. we want to go to the north first and new england which has been getting pummeled through the day. this is one of the ten biggest storms in history. in boston right now, already breaking the record of 27 inches which was set ten years ago back in 2003. and that is the fear that made massac
sumatra, it's not going near major population centers. but yeah, if it hit a city, it would be a huge, huge impact. the truth is we have these things fly by us all the time. not this size but the day could come when we could have a visitor. >> what did you say? how long have they been tracking this one for? >> for more than 2 million miles. spotted way off in space out there, and in fact, you will not be able to see it with your naked eye. but if you had a pretty good telescope, you would be able to see a pinpoint of light passing by on february 15th. >> keep it a pinpoint of light, it never needs to get any closer than that. >> astronomer. >> he's just a magician. >> thank you very much. you can always follow what's going on here in "the situation room" on twitter, tweet me @wolfblitzer.

providence, right in front of city hall. there has not been a soul in sight in the last four hours that i have been here. that's how abandoned it is. an emergency vehicle drove up to see if we were doing all right here. i spoke to the governor today. i was with the mayor, i was in the emergency command center tonight, chris. their real concern, they said we know we're going to have power outages. the issue is how many. if the snow doesn't get more dry, if it doesn't get colder, frankly, they're expecting many power outages. they say a prolonged storm is what they fear. not only afterwards do they have the plowing issue. they have the snow removal issue. one thing that makes this very different than 1978, the governor told me that technology today is so much better. i saw the gps they have on their plows now. the technology is so much better that they are able to prepare in advance, get those plows exactly where they need to be, get the cars off the roads in advance, that they're not going to have the same issues. you had 26 deaths here in 1978 during that blizzard. and here you go, anothe
lot. in south boston, but the reality is some 600 plows have been out throughout the city all night trying to battle this blizzard. throughout the state, you've got about 4,000 pieces of equipment, the national guard numbering about 5,000, who are on the standby when the teeth of the storm hits. just about an hour or so from now. we blizzard like conditions, if you look up the street, you can barely see up the street. simply because you have this powdery like snow which is blowing all over the place and making things very difficult. i just want to give you an example of how cold it is here. in between live shots, i run to my truck which is being buried in the snow drift, but my photographing stays out so you can get live bumps, live pictures of what is going on. let me show you, hand that to my producer. this is hard. he's like the tin man out here. it's trying to -- thanks, bob, for doing that for us. bob the photographer, who is now literally frozen stiff. >> wow. >> you can see he's still out here shooting, giving us an idea of how cold it gets out here. >> amazing job that all o

the city of providence, the state of rhode island is trying to deal with this morning. that is massive power outages, wet, thick snow falling on trees, on power lines. it means about nearly 200,000 homes here in rhode island are without power. that is what they're dealing with at this hour. some good news, some of those bridges out to places like newport, rhode island, have reopened. they closed late last night because of these sustained 58-mile-per-hour wind gusts we were getting. those have reopened. i-95, that huge interstate through massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island still closed, though. roads here in providence closed a's well since 5:00 eastern right now. illegal to be out driving on them. stay home. even though it looks better, stay home. we had a chance last night to hang out with this guy, let's bring him into the picture, colonel pete gaynor, who heads emergency transportation. snow plows, gps tracking their every move. you were up all night. give us a sense of the situation now here in providence and broader rohode island. where does it stand? >> it's been a long nigh
of newark? >> the conditions are worsening. walked through all five wards of the city and checked on the crews and the conditions on the street. a lot of stranded cars now. a lot of people out that shouldn't be. so it's very perilous out there and people need to understand that. stay indoofrs and hunker down for the night. conditions will be bad throughout the morning tomorrow. this is not time to take this lightly. very dangerous conditions, especially around motor vehicle accidents. and we areal also on alert for possible power outages in newark if the wind starts to pick up. i'm grateful for the hundreds of workers we have out there from law enforcement to folks plowing and salting streets. a lot of work ahead. >> as the sun will begin to rise in a couple of hours is when, as you mentioned, we will get a better chance to see the damage done. hopefully the streets are cleared. first responders can get out and about. what's the biggest challenge, you think, come tomorrow morning? >> i think it is the mess and getting rid of this from our streets. and hopefully people will stay in

on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so

% of new york city but had more than half the deaths from hurricane sandy, 23 people died here. there are still an estimated 1400 people who are homeless. i was here three months ago because so many homes were damaged. this right here was a home. and you can see it is rubble and it has stayed rubble. this next door was heavy di damaged however they're rebuilt it. the family that rebuilt was hoping to move in but because of the blizzard they had to stop the work. there was so much concern in staten island because of what happened three months ago, just a couple of blocks away from here. a woman had her two children. her car was blown offer the road and she couldn't hold on to them. they found them later, 2 of the 23 that died and there still is to this day but as a matter of fact across the street you see that tent, people aren't living in that tent. it has been put up to provide hot feels for homeless people. when this started there were people who were homeless from sandy having luncheon side that tent. there's a great sense of relief that the blizzard wasn't as bad as it was
you think the city's response has been so far to the blizzard? >> it's been great. they have given us a lot of notice and the signs on the highways and the emergencies on the internet and other signs across the city. it's been -- they have prepared us well. >> i know you guys also stocked up on supplies. earlier, some of the supermarkets in the city were running out of milk, running out of bread. i think you have plenty of other types of supplies to keep you busy. >> we might have other supplies to keep us busy, but we are also, you know, do have supplies and water and things like that. but you know, we are trying to realize that we will be here for the weekend and trying to make sure we have everything that will keep us sustainable through that time period. >> they were telling me earlier, anderson, they hadn't seen snow like this in a few years? >> long time. >> a few years, gut obviously, we still have a lot more to go before the night is over. >> jason, we'll be checking with you. we'll be on the air for two hours and more coverage after that, so all night long. a short drive down
there with the the snow blowers and shovels clearing it for the guests. but a lot of the city sidewalks have not been touched. a couple right here behind me walking in the street. the streets have become the sidewalks. obviously people who have pets have to come outside to let their pets do what they need to do. and the street's the best place to do it. we are starting to see some traffic. and i believe that's interstate 95 over here to my left. i am seeing cars and trucks passing down through the interstate. but keep in mind that it's going to be awhile. i don't know if governor chaffey is going to open the roadways back up today. again the priority is to get the roadways cleared. it's going to be tougher for crews to do that if people decide let's go out and take a look and see how bad things are. they want you to stay home. give them a day. and then maybe tomorrow things are going to be a little bit better. >> stay home. watch it on tv. you can get out perhaps better tomorrow. ron mott thanks for the report. >>> let's go to another area buried under deep snow. that's connecticut. we have nbc's ron
, the storm center itself is in the vicinity of cape cod and from connecticut to long island. new york city is on the west edge of the most activity as far as snow is concerned and connecticut has the highest measurements right now with two feet of snow and as you can see on the radar, still blustering. >> as john was mentioning, the snow doesn't look like it wants to move out very fast. it has the potential to be a record-breaker. >> this morning 600 businesses and homes without power, the errant is closed. thousands of flights are grounded. james gray has more. >> the amount of snow across the northeast. in some areas including boston, accumulations could reach three feet or more. some of that snow pushed by winds of up to 75 miles an hour. a brutal combination creating dangerous blizzard conditions. the storm has literally stopped most of new england in its tracks. more than 1,800 cancellations at area airports and 4700 flights canceled nationwide. the governor of massachusetts today ordered all cars off the roadaway starting at 4:00 p.m. after this 19-car pileup in maine. scattered cars
of the snow is east of new york city. everywhere you see pink through here, that's a foot of snow or more, and the purple is 20 to 30 inches of snow. that's from portland, maine, to boston, to providence, that's still to come. you already have 6 on the ground. there's plus 20. that's still a good snowfall. albany, you'll see about 6 to 10 more. down toward new york city, it appears you're almost in this dry area where there will be 8 to your north, 4 to your south, but not a lot more to come still in the city compares to what is on long island, over a foot still to come here. and this is the danger zone, just snowing everywhere out here. it's coming down in buckets because at the low comes through here, its closest position is going to be to boston, not new york city. that's why snow is not going to be as heavy in the city as in boston because the low is much closer there. then by tomorrow afternoon, literally, this thing is gone. saturday, 4:00, 5:00, the snow is completely over. only the wind is left. erin. >> what's the bottom line? there have been competing models. someone said the eu
in front of city hall. and i haven't seen more than two people here in, i guess since about 5:00 eastern last night. i want to show you what's happening at the end of the block because an hour ago we couldn't see the end of the block and now we can. we're seeing it's getting clearer here, we're not seeing those massive wind gusts, things seem to have turned the corner here, but now the big concern is what do you do about all the homes without power? 187,000 and counting. that's the number as of 6:00 a.m. eastern of homes in rhode island without power and the power company national grid facing a very big uphill battle here. that is a very big portion of the population of rhode island. if you look relatively speaking, it's the hardest hit in terms of how many people without power relatively speaking here. why did that happen? all last night it was relatively warm. so the snow was wet and heavy and fell on those power lines, trees knocked them out. i spent last night talking to the governor, the state, the mayor of providence, rhode island. the emergency manager here and all of them had tha
